6:02pm
is a doll show? the big question tonight for a good conference jaber as president by than urges the mayors to back hamas plan while the campaign tries to use sign petitions. my guest says the disparity should not be to pass new laws and enforce the ones we already have. michael reagan sent of president reagan and host of the michael reagan show. is this for show? will he put us into a false sense of security? >> exactly. letting people think we're really doing something. the reality is not one bill here or anywhere else that would save one life from connecticut or the aurora theater or arizona.
6:03pm
they would not save any lives. the president of united states with kids and family members people believe he is doing something to save a life but would not have happened. gerri: because the crux get the guns. >> this man tried to buy a gun twice. the law works he was turned down. he went home and stole his mother's gun and went to the school. the day my father was shot my seat reservists agent by said how the hell can you allow my father to get shot with secret service he said retrain 24/7. we can never traded enough
6:04pm
is the crazy thing crazies are who we worry about. whether or a colorado or back at sandy hook or arizona we have the crazies. gerri: it is the mental health issue for you groote topic on the school with a president's daughters go with their own social security detail but you say there is a lot of security there. >> david gregory, bloomberg there's a lot of kids if there was no president said -- sending his kids to that school there would still be 11 armed guards. you could have a press conference and said why you feel safe? this school where my daughter teaches 29 years of age 5-foot 2 inches so
6:05pm
relates at sandy hook she said i would have done the same thing that those teachers did but that school did not go to congress to the assembly of our city council but they hired the armed guard. they did not need government to tell them that they did it. why do they think need -- they need washington? gerri: est. double standard some of those work in india to say we get rid of the guns and bob schieffer actually comparing dealing with the nra to dealing with synopses. >> surely defeating the nazis was a much more formidable task than taking on the gun lobby.
6:06pm
this is a turning point* in this country. %-more than make a speech this is one of the best speeches i heard him deliver. >> he went after countries that did not have weapons. we went after countries that did not. it is so enrages to do that and say those things and hollywood stars getting on board with the president. they have armed bodyguards. do you think you could walk into the golden globes without a metal detector? gerri: double standard. the entertainment industry said we support the goals of reduced gun violence but they are protected by armed guards and the material they put out is full of people
6:07pm
shooting each other with a top movies. >> last night gangster's god. there is no shooting in that show. gerri: 65 characters die. >> my son said did they really do that? those of the questions. he is 34 years old. there is no press conference or joe biden when the children were dying in chicago every weekend. but a bunch of killed are killed then we have to change the world to make them believe any of them would save there child's life that is what is sad go get a guard for your school will also need to think about culture and really
6:08pm
having a conversation not a two week implementation of the of biden on. gerri: wall said. i appreciate it. what do you think? does obama want to get rid of the second amendment? log on at gerriwillis.com. more coming up the apple stock seems to be in free fall costing you even if you don't own a single share. mr. president what have you done for me lately? stay with me. ♪ ♪

6:12pm
gerri: obama they've put rise on gun-control busy doing enough about mental health? we have dr. keith ablow. they give for being with us. it is not gun laws but mental health? >> absolutely. every case of someone under treated or poorly treated were not treated for a severe mental illness. the idea they would not be resourceful enough, if you took all guns off of the planet there is explosives, a fire, cars, the greatest number of mass killings in america are not done with automatic weapons but hand guns or explosives, a fire, and cars.
6:13pm
the grade school killing 1927 and james holmes used explosives producing taking guns will prevent these tragedies? not at all. gerri: and the horrible situations people are rushing to judgment trying to get resolution but that will not solve the mental health issue? >> no. a hijack these tragedies for whom autonomy is a bad word. latching on to say here's the crisis if. we can achieve gun-control to take guns back but gun ownership promotes independence, responsibility and autonomy and well-being. focusing on the problem we
6:14pm
have a shattered mental health care system. there is so cool -- cruel joke you cannot get a health insurance company to pay unless you repeat your homicidal and will not retract. gerri: with james holmes a pair a psychiatrist at the university of colorado heard directly as i understand it it, through diaries or something he intended to take people out. did she have the obligation to go to the police? >> she did she have the obligation to hospitalize him against his will to take him off the street. if there is an unnamed victim to warn the victim.
6:15pm
in this case he did not identify but if peace that i am thinking about where there is a chance absolutely inpatient psychiatric unit. but the reservoir of knowledge is limited because we have the constructed mental health care due to the third-party insurance. gerri: dr. manny says it is wrong that obamacare does not mean that doctors should not feel free to talk to the cops. now with new york requires there pursed -- their best doctors and nurses to tell authorities if the patient will harm himself or others. >> that is utterly absurd.
6:16pm
psychiatrists, psychologists , social workers already are empowered to do what they need to do if insurance companies were not in the way. get them the care that they need. just making a call what will they do? did not have a magic health care system there is a shortage of resources. gerri: if you are my doctor and worried i would hurt others he would not report me to the police? >> no. you're going to the hospital i went to file the requisite paperwork to go to the hospital. it is the prescription to drive people away. why'd you want the government informed? it invokes paranoia and i
6:17pm
don't think it is unintended. they believe in the centralized authority and not individual rights and freedoms we see that again from this administration. gerri: why would you have the doctors get involved? >> it is wrongheaded it takes with the trust factor between doctor and patient, but in forming the government? will you imprison them? once you inform the government is wrongheaded. we already know what to do was dangerous patients with the resources in the mental health care system don't exist. gerri: dr. apple of thank you for coming on. come back soon.
6:18pm
the elite media is treating the president on the job done over the past four years doing what he set out to do. how well the carryall banking reform? health care reform did he squeeze enough money out of the rich? they are grading the president if he carried out the to do list grading him on his own terms. that does not matter. i think is what have you done for the american people mr. president? like janet jackson song. obama said he wanted to be a chance for regional president unfortunately the changes i have seen for us is not so good. the country we assumed the paycheck gets bigger overtime is the opposite. median household income is lower.

6:26pm
>> it depends going forward. gerri: what happened to a different pot? that is ridiculous. >> the rule that mutual funds you should not have more than 10% of any position. gerri: how many growth fund and value fund with the same stock? i think portfolio managers saw the of run up and wanted to get on board whether not yet matched their portfolio plan they plowed a bunch of money into it. >> there was momentum chasing for sure. apple is going through a major transition in terms of the growth profile. it had a hyper growth period
6:27pm
now going forward just a normal good growth period the results in a change of ownership. one year ago more growth fund had the stock with a larger percentage from apple. gerri: by so or hold? >> i would hold for sure. exciting for apple going forward we have patterns of period to go into these periods and then slowed down. you do see the a 25% correction but you cannot predict when it sorts out but they are changing the business model. they will become more branded like nike i think it

6:29pm
the banking industry, the top 12th have over 60 percent of the assets. it has layered bureaucracy and form filing and regulation on the smaller banks. gerri: fisher is an influential voice that says dodd/frank is not working. boeing's says they stick with the 787 but is it safe to fly? he stepped down the is the livestrong charity really what it says it is? it's a new day.

the darkest moment of his career. a tell-all 65 sit-down interview with oprah winfrey. what does all this mean for his charity, the charity he started, strong, going forward. are those who donate being misled some say donations to list are not doing a thing to help care cancer. founder and president of charity was joins me now, and we are very happy at year. i want to read the mission statement from there website. they say, we find new ways to raise awareness, increase our reach and facilitate collaboration. we provide support to guide people through the cancer experience, bring them together to fight cancer, and work for a world in which our fight is no longer necessary. i bet if i went out on the street right now and interviewed five people they would tell me that live strong is about finding a cure for cancer. what is the disconnect? >> well, most people make that assumption is a cancer charity involved in research, but there are many ways that one can help
6:34pm
with this important cause an issue. certainly there needs to be more awareness, there needs to be people suffering, patients that are trying to survive and struggling to deal with this need some sort of assistance, so there is some value to that. gerri: come on. raising awareness? don't we know that cancer is a problem? raising awareness, to me, his cancer is my charity of choice. that is not the mission statement i want to hear. >> i would tend to agree. these top -- calls from other arab talking about cancer and that doing something about it, but they hold conferences. they encourage collaboration. gerri: conferences? conferences? does that benefit plans armstrong in any way? >> well, it could benefit him indirectly certainly, but there is some value to people studying these issues and how best to be treating the patients and people suffering.
6:35pm
there is something worth that. but i agree with you, a lot of people will like to go to laboratory research rather than research the behavioral studies of people that are going through the cancer startle. gerri: you have done some great work looking at the money following the dollar's with live strong. what to you make of the amount of money they are raising in a much is actually going to the mission? >> they're able to get about 80 percent of their budget to charitable programs. that being public awareness and patient assistance types. a lot of it is education, both professional and public education. so they're able to get 80 percent of that. $17 to raise $100, which earns them and 8-minus grade. the card to buy one of the larger cancer charities. we reveal about 45 of them. they're like number 12 in size do think he is sincere about the
6:36pm
charity because it is quite a huge and has a lot of programming. a lot of celebrity athletes that have charities that don't amount to much of all. gerri: this is a big one, and it is one that gets a lot of public attention. i think that, you know, we make assumptions about this charity and it seems to me at the end of the date even though lance has left the charity, he resigned because of what has been going on about his, you know, telling the truth about his story, still, i think he gets benefits from live strong at the end of the date. we talked about the conferences before. you and i talked about this over the telephone. he does this and benefits from this because of their relationships. tell us about that. >> well, a lot of the charity has business agreements, often like selling or licensing they're very popular or once a very popular live strong, you know, those yellow bracelets.
6:37pm
that logo is so popular. and so while the charity is negotiating when lance armstrong was an officer of the charity, at the same time he is getting in many cases being paid as a spokesperson. he really would not be someone in a position to negotiate independently from of the people he selected for his board and so forth. it's better if the charity does not have their officers or directors or founders actually benefit from any of the vendors that the charity is doing business with. gerri: you think there are too entangled. >> it would be better if those relations did not exist. they're saying they have gone through proper checks and balances, but it is really hard to do. concern about the experience, not just sexual conflicts. gerri: appreciate your time. good conversation. we appreciate your insight. thank you.
6:38pm

gerri: boeing is still producing a 77 dream liner despite the ongoing nightmare of airlines keeping the planes grounded. six concerns. with me now, fare compare. do you think this is warranted? keeping this plane should be granted? >> to be honest, there is an
6:43pm
abundance of safety, security, and i think that the yes, it should be. you're looking at six or seven incidents in the last three or four weeks. one of these big residences, worried about the batteries and the plane being a major problem. i'm glad that they're running it now. let everyone feel like they're sifting on the plane. there are only 58 aircraft worldwide right now. only six in the united states. gerri: but there are a ton in the pipeline to my friend. >> this up aircraft is the future. a big part of the future of long-haul travel worldwide. this is like going from atari text box. the going to have some glitches. we know that's going to happen. this is more than just a normal just let's just. gerri: you know, you say going atari text box. the thing is for boeing this is a major technological innovation they are reducing the cost of the weight of the plan by using more grim materials. this is key to the future the
6:44pm
company. the thick and get back on line quickly? you know that the protection of the plan has been hung up with all kinds of design problems tamales are problems. can they get them back up and running? >> they're going to have to. they don't have a choice. these things are rolling off the assembly line. they're going to have to fix it. if it's a major fix and it delayed several months that's going to terrible for them, but it's a little late a few weeks will be a hassle for airlines. reid, it a bunch of passengers because everybody wants to fly this aircraft. have been trying to get on one. it's hard to get ticket. gerri: i don't want to play right now. it makes me so nervous. united is the only u.s. carrier right now with these and-. should people be worried. >> for the most part you will be getting on a flight.

6:46pm
should the call-up, make sure they're not getting done one. what's your view? >> if you're nervous about that, in my opinion i fly more than proline most people do. the pilot its own for dinner at and he is happy about getting home for dinner, i'm happy about getting on a plane. it doesn't matter. if you have concerns will soever you have the information in your itinerary. if your book on a particular flight to my bill be read booking you anyway. absolutely move if you have any issues with it. for the most part i think it is only if this thing -- if we see it drift and they don't get it, i definitely would be concerned. i would start to be concerned, and i am the least person to get concerned about this. gerri: certainly if he sought companies saying we're canceling orders for the dream liner, that would be a big red flag. >> that would be the huge red flag. by the way, there is really no
